    We are tworking on our daily plans for our upcoming visit and I had a question. What time do the counter services open at the parks?

    Hi Brittany,

    Opening times vary from restaurant to restaurant.  For instance, in the Magic Kingdom during my most recent visit Columbia Harbour House and Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe opened at 10:30 am, but Casey's Corner, Pinocchio Village Haus, and Tortuga Tavern opened at 11:00 am. 

    The quick service restaurants that have breakfast offerings, like Sunshine Seasons in the Land Pavilion at Epcot, open with the theme park. 

    For the purpose of planning out your meals during your upcoming visit, let me advise you to schedule lunch on the early side.  We always try to have an early breakfast before we enter the theme parks.  Then we are hungry for lunch at 11:00 am.  Eating at this early hour will save you from long lines at the quick service restaurants and crowded seating areas.  It makes for a much more enjoyable lunch experience.

    Have fun with your planning and let us know if you have any additional questions.
